Describe An Issue of Personal Concern I am violently warring for peace I know this is a paradox and Im rather proud because it is true Passivity has been a lifelong threat laziness a constant lure in my search for identity This world begs me to succumb to existing in the image of someone else it asks only that I slip silently and blindly into the niche it provides instead of carving my own I required a long time to work up courage to fight for the serenity I had glimpsed in hot summer woods and in lovingly handled books read late until the early morning Doubt had established itself in my mind at some early age when or why I do not know and I could trust any person or group more than myself Doubt begat fear and fear gave birth to obscuring myself from the eyes of the world while I was a child Now I am dedicated to the fight after over five years of fear and immobility I rejected the easiest way out of life and demanded truth I strengthened my body as I strengthened my mind against the attacks I faced When I was fifteen I started Tae Kwon Do the martial arts class that was offered through my school I learned more about blocking kicking and punching in the first two weeks of that class than I had known my entire life My once powerless body petite and thin could knock the wind out of someone with a well placed punch and I could kick people taller than me in the head So what I could do I did and now my friends instinctively block when they see me grin mischievously in their direction I am content to know I have taught them something useful Last spring for the third time in a row I shakily accepted my teachers hand as he congratulated me on second place
